It says "if we fail to ask these questions, we are subject to a fine." so are they talking about the doctor's office?

It doesn't say YOU have to answer the questions, it just says THEY have to ask them. Even so, I am sure there is other fine print further along that says they can't treat you if you don't answer.

Obama is getting concerned that the US citizens may wake up and take note of what he is perpetuating.

I think he is worrying too much.

He'll be safe as long as he can provide table scraps to the indolent dimwits on the urban plantations.

Have you ever participated in a demonstration?

Have you ever, privately or in public, referred to any public official as "that asshole"

Do you have any objection if we place this small GPS device underneath your scalp?

Isn't the federal government supposed to secure the blessings of liberty ? How does asking these questions achieve that ?

The bill of rights (the first ten amendments) was written to restrict the government from becoming tyrannical and oppressive. In other words, any government left unfettered and unrestrained will become destroyers of the individual. It will become despotic and tyrannical. What I am trying to say is, the government will never protect our rights. It will only deprive us of our freedoms. The government must be kept in check, restricted, and contained, or we will all become property of the state. We will lose our individualism. We will all become slaves to the government. We must stand now while we can, before the beast becomes too big to control. We must speak out and not be allowed to be shouted down. The ones that would subjugate us are small in number compared to the ones who cherish freedom. It is only that the suppressors are much louder and much more aggressive.

On this MLK Day eve, I predict a new MLK-like figure will arise to lead the sheeple. He will be imbued with the ideology of Ron Paul and the charisma of King to lead the nation in it's rise from the ashes. But then again maybe I'm just feeling optimistic today for no particular reason.

Substitute 'imbued with the ideology of Karl Marx' and you just described Obama.

It already happened.

The question will all must answer now is are we willing to fight and possibly die in support of our beliefs.  Take a minute, look in the mirror, and ask yourself 'am I willing to die to defend what I know to be true and just?  Am I willing to say goodbye to my family, friends, comforts of living on Planet Earth?'  If the answer is no, then we are all just wasting our time.

The question you really have to ask yourself is "Am I willing to risk my family for this?"  That is the bottom line here. Governments have been known to hold the family unit hostage to keep people in line.

They can ask all they want -- I refuse to answer.  I will continue to exercise all of the rights my forefathers guaranteed to me under The U.S. Constitution.  I will not feed the evil machine.

Shall we all just answer, "I love everything, I love everybody, my favorite color is pink and I love puppies, kitties and doggies and I believe in King Obomber, and...."  ?  I think not.

in fact you arent even human anymore, you are just an animal man - thus you can be impaired at will by those with more power: end of story.


i didnt see this at first at either, but now i am reformed and i love big brother

All the hip political class likeeee "god". They dance before a carved owl, in the woods of Cali, sacrificing "care" if Repliscams, or they worship the earth and will exact our "tithe" through regulation and law if Democraps. They ALL bow to business interests, their "gods" of commerce. I think the forefathers were referring to the True Giver of life.

Orwell warned us, friends, diogeneslaertius just reminded us.

Winston loved big brother.

My political wet dream is that one day in the future 500+ DC jobs in the Executive, Legislative  and Judicial get filled by brand new freshly voted in faces, and they are so "green" that they ponder what to do next, and some bright guy or gal, says, "Hey, lets go break out the Constitution, maybe we'll read it aloud, and we'll start working from there".

Yes, I thought it was rather disappointing that no informative follow through was made in the article, namely the questions.  Once the information of a new government requirement was broadcast, people's imaginations were left to roam free, sensationalizing the item.

Obama just made Romney's plan nationwide.When Romney was Governor of his State most Republicans voted for it and thought it was great.Looks very much like Canada's healthcare plan.Which reminds me,is free trade slowly taking place in other ways with Mexico and Canada?Look for big government savings in the future as the medical society will have to take a big financial hit.I can see anybody going into any NAFTA country and getting the same care but at a universal NAFTA rate.It's the only way that the U.S. can get it's costs under control.Afterall,there are very few nations in the world with this type of plan except for Russia,Canada,Cuba and China.What does that tell you?

We have the power to bring the system down in non-violent fashion. My guess is that if the 53% stop all non-essential purchases, the system crashes in 3 months or less. If frugal becomes cool, we win. There is hope. Google thrift shop.

We may be capable of taking the system down in a non-violent manner, but if you think they will react in a non-violent way you are kidding yourself.

Starve the Beast!!!  Without the fraudulent income taxes paid on compensation received for services rendered paid by the morons/idiots/sheeple, the Beast East of the Potomac will run out of resources.

Americans are financing their own national and cultural destruction.  The homosexual communist/fascist illegal alien muscum squatting in the WH has been assigned  by the Babylonian bankster elites to issue the coup de grace to the United States of America.

Next up....The guns and human fodder of hundreds of millions of Chinese will be used and sacrificed to their NWO.  The entire plan is all available the be read in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.  It is not really a secret any longer. Most of the plan is now history and plain as the nose on your face.

You can even be frugal when buying essential things. Oh and don't worry as being frugal will soon morph into surviving the new normal on a daily basis.

What ever happened to pleading the 5th?  You can acknowledge that the question has been asked but refuse to answer under the 5th - since the government is not being clear as to why the question is being asked in the first place and what consequences your answer might bring to you in future. 

I mean, what the hell?  Where are the constitutional lawyers?

Well I know where you can find one supposed constitutional lawyer who acts like he doesn't give two shits about it.  Some even think that he was groomed to be a constitutional lawyer so that he could dissect it into oblivion.  Some people have the craziest ideas!
